What Causes Wind? (Science)



The purpose of this lesson is to help students understand why wind occurs. The emphasis will be on helping them understand the basics of high and low pressure, as well as convection. There are 2 labs, one lab where they simply follow the instructions to create rising and falling air, and another where they show their understanding of flowing fluids, by designing their own experiment.
